    This dress has a great shape and is very flattering. I did have to have it hemmed about three inches to get it to the knee length I prefer.

            What a wonderful closet staple! The Chancery is a great, neutral canvas to dress up (or down) as one sees fit. I can't imagine the shape being unflattering on anyone. A full, swingy skirt always puts a bounce in my step and this one is no exception. The fabric is pleasantly heavy with good drape and seems quite warm enough for nippy days. My only wish would be that the sleeves were *very slightly* less tight - but I think my arms are larger than normal so it may just be me.

                I received the dress in the mail in navy and was thrilled with the quality of the workmanship and the flow of the dress. When I put it on, the waist was too high on my 5'8" frame (I have a long torso) and was up around my rib cage. As the skirt is full, the fabric extended out from my rib cage which might be flattering on someone with more to hide but as I have a pretty straight figure, this did nothing for me. Alas, it is going back.

                  I am shorter in stature, 5 foot 5, and average in weight 130ish. This dress was classic in design but took away what little waist I have making me look very short. It was more an empire fit. It was also too long and went past the knee. Pretty dress, just for a different body type.
